Britney Spears

Britney Spears’ label, Jive Records, have decided to market Blackout without her. A source close to the label says the decision stems from the fact that Britney blows them off whenever they ask her to help market the album. For example, when Britney was supposed to show up at the Virgin Megastore, but drove away to go clubbing.

“They can’t get Britney to do anything!” said a source close to the label and Spears. “They did get her to do one photo-shoot for some promotional materials, but beyond that, they can’t trust her to even show up. This album could’ve been so much bigger with Britney involved.

Jive is going about this all wrong. The easiest way to get Britney to do anything is to dangle a chocolate carrot on a rope in front of her. She’ll go anywhere with that.

In related news, Britney Spears is crazy. The troubled pop princess was seen wandering around the Four Seasons Hotel topless.

But her bizarre behavior was evident as recently as Sunday, when our spy found her looking confused as she wandered around the locker room of the Four Seasons Hotel in L.A. – wearing just a bikini bottom. When another woman asked her where the hotel pool was, Brit replied, “Oh, is there a pool here?”

Wow, um, I don’t know what to say. I can only imagine walking through L.A. and being asked by a spaced out Britney for directions to the nearest fast food joint. A reasonable request if not for the fact she’s already holding two McDonald’s bags in either hand and there’s Big Mac sauce smeared across her mouth. It’s hard to know what to do in this type of situation, but common sense dictates I should probably throw a dollar at her and run.
